    Easy cutting of 120/220 film to 127

    Here's a quick vid showing how to cut any 120/220 film down to 127 format. Quite a money saver, if I do say so myself.

    Doesn't this method result in the backing paper only being the same width as the film whereas I assume that normal 127 backing paper overlaps 127 film as 120 backing paper does for 120 film so light getting into the edge of the film becomes a problem. The demonstrator does mention this but short of loading and unloading the 127 film into and from the camera in total darkness it risks light damage into the edge of the film

    Is there a way round this? I agree that 127 film seems to command a premium price on e-bay, in the U.K at least, simply because it is a niche product with a limited range of films available. So a great idea if film edge light damage can be overcome and re-spooling is relatively simple which I am not sure it is.

    Haha cscurrier, that chair is not of my choosing, it's left over by some old ladies

    Pentaxuser, you could keep the backing paper from another 127 roll and use that, or you could make your own backing paper. But this whole operation, including loading a camera, could easily be done in a small changing bag. But respooling is very easy, I just didn't include it in the vid.

    Well it's a wonderful chair! It's definitely something I would photograph within a certain scenery or so.

    Very cool. Now I can start to use my grey baby Rolleiflex again, and with a bunch of different films! Those expensive Efke rolls were killing me.

    Haha, it is actually the most comfortable chair ever... it is a stealth recliner. Very hard to sit in it and not take a nap.

    Nice solution, thanks for the tip.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    Very nifty little trick. Admittedly, my mind travelled to some harsh places after you used the word "circumcision" to describe the process while you were viciously twisting the poor thing. Everything said after that word choice was heard in that context. Ouch!
